Day One Alaska Trek
Left Raleigh from Geof’s house where we parked the trailer overnight (more level than our place) at just after 7 and headed to Knoxville. A bonus was to see Ellary looking pretty in her dress for Promotion Day as she finished lower school and begins upper school. First stop, a visit with our friend, Jill. She prepared a nice lunch and made us cookies and coffee cake for the journey. Always the gracious hostess we enjoyed a special time with her. We then headed north and ended the day in a Cabela’s parking lot in Lexington, KY. I can report that we saw no bears on day one! It was basically uneventful which is how you want a travel day to unfold.
Cadillac’s Most Correct Viewpoint
I think my “Stern Talk”® to the Driver has paid off because we made a lot of states today. Not exactly sure how many we have to go across, maybe 11 or six and today we did FOUR. (I don’t need to remind you that we were four days getting to three states last fall.) So my estimate of 4 days to Alaska is pretty good. Estimating is one of my more outstanding abilities.
We also ate lunch with the lovely Jill and she made me cookies. Excellent cookies because they had cranberries. I guess she knew I would be a bit homesick for Maine.
Oh, and not a single cannon or stale old house did we see. This might be a pretty good trip.
